WHAT ARE YOU STRUGGLING WITH RIGHT NOW?

Struggling to actually study Spanish!  I’ve definitely got a little bit of a groove going with the kids and their Spanish but if I lose interest than they lose interest.  I need to find some time in my day to squeeze in “alone” time …even if that just means earplugs during the chaos to study my Spanish.

WHAT BOOK(S) ARE YOU READING CURRENTLY?

I’m just starting a book study with a friend called “Keeping in Balance” from the Walking with Purpose series.  Literally is blowing my mind and my heart.  I’ve been searching (little did I know it) for a study that called me on the struggles with authenticity and balance!  

WHAT’S YOUR LATEST FAVORITE MEAL TO MAKE?

Hmmm…tough one.  The one that I don’t have to cook?! Just kidding…I actually love to cook …maybe not as often as I have to but I do love to cook.  Currently I’m digging chicken dishes…simply because I’m trying to make a consistent chicken stock so I’ll cook a chicken and then have a couple of meals from that one chicken!  Enchiladas, pot pie…chicken salad… lol you get the hint! The worst part though is my eldest hates chicken…so she tells me EVERY time I make chicken anything so I have to get creative! 🙂 

FAVORITE PRAYER AT THIS MOMENT?

I know this is silly but every day as we start our school day…I ask the kids to lead us in prayer and hearing what they come up with has become my favorite.  Especially when I ask them what they want to thank God for.  

WHAT HELPS YOU RECHARGE?

One of my favorite pulpits you’ll hear me preach is self care.  Lately the way I’ve been able to recharge lately has been by reading my book that I mentioned above.  It literally forces me to think of something besides dinner, kids, laundry, potty training and the fact that I’m not sleeping (hello Dominic!).  Even if things still aren’t done it recharges me mentally as I work on my relationship with God.  The bonus is I’m using the Marco Polo app and doing it with a friend….so I have extra time connecting with a friend!
